Carina Avenant Audiologist Inc. provides hearing screening services to any industry, company or institution, in an effort to identify possible hearing problems.
Prior to the screening test a short case history will be obtained from the patient to identify factors that might be contributing to the possible hearing problem. An otoscopic examination will also be performed to identify any abnormalities or pathologies in the outer ear canal and ear drum. The audiological screening service is provided through the use of our calibrated, mobile audiometer (the KuduWave). Our only requirement is to have a relatively quiet room with an electricity point on the day of screening and that the industry, company or institution market this free service to their employees prior to testing.
If required by the company a report with findings is available (based on relevant legislation such as SANS 10083: 2004 and Regulation 171).
